The program was developed by the college with funding from the MoHealthWINs grant. Charlotte Nicole Allen of Trenton, Ruth Dredge of Maryville, Camie Griffin of Chillicothe and Joy Provance of Altamont graduated May 10. Ms. Provance graduated with honors.

These students completed all of their Level II nursing lecture classes and examinations via the online format, but were required to come to the Trenton campus for training and testing in the Skills Laboratory. NCMC partnered with Heartland Regional Medical Center in Saint Joseph, Mo., so that the students could obtain their clinical experiences.

“I am so proud of these students,” said Sarah Maloney, MoHealthWINs Grant Administrator at NCMC. “They had the discipline and dedication to complete the rigorous nursing curriculum as online students.”

NCMC’s nursing faculty ensured congruency with the on-site programs and access to all the same learning resources. Nursing faculty use Tegrity, an Internet-based service, to record their classroom lectures. The online students have access 24 hours a day to watch the lectures and post questions and comments to faculty and their fellow students.

NCMC also used MoHealthWINs grant funds to develop an accelerated online Pharmacy Technician Certificate Program. This program takes just one semester to complete and is designed to educate and prepare students to take the National Examination for Certified Pharmacy Technicians. This academic year, 15 MoHealthWINs participants at NCMC completed coursework in the Pharmacy Technician Certificate Program. Coursework was taught online by pharmacist Dr. NiCole Neal of Trenton. In addition, these students each completed two internships, one at a retail pharmacy and one at a hospital pharmacy. Dr. Neal also used the Tegrity service to deliver curriculum and communicate with students.

Students completing pharmacy technician coursework were: Richard Blythe of Brookfield, Kristoffer Gilson of Hale, Lacie Groom of Grant City, Rebecca Harkins of Tina, Patricia Heming of Fairfax, Debbie Holaday of Barnard, Saige Johnson of Gilman City, Kamilyn Matthews of Saint Joseph, Ashle Moore of Ravenwood, Bobby Morgan of Trenton, Amanda Pierce of Braymer, Debbie Ogelsby of Maryville, Victoria Redick of Laclede, Brandy Roberts of Trenton and Cynthia Sullivan of Maryville. They join LuAnn Head and Candy Suggs, both of Chillicothe, as program completers. Head and Suggs were in the inaugural MoHealthWINs Pharmacy Technician Certificate Program and completed it in June 2013. Ms. Heming and Ms. Moore graduated with highest honors.

“I am proud of the pharmacy technician graduates,” Ms. Maloney said. “It took commitment and perseverance to complete four online classes plus 90 hours of internship in 16 weeks.”

Participants in the MoHealthWINs grant program receive intense tutoring and advising as a means to foster student learning success. Also, Administrator Maloney tracks the graduates for a year after program completion and provides them assistance in securing employment or continued education.

All public community colleges in Missouri are participating in the MoHealthWINs consortium that applied for a $20 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor. The central concept of the grant challenged community colleges to develop educational programs that deliver curriculum using accelerated, flexible and innovative methods to train unemployed, underemployed, low skilled and Trade Act Adjustment recipients for well-paying jobs in healthcare careers.
